Lenovo’s C740 14-inch laptop is one of the best laptops you can buy, and it’s also the most affordable option in our buying guide. Now, at Best Buy, it costs even less than usual. The standard configuration with a quad-core 10th Gen Intel Core i5-10210U processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD is just $600 instead of its regular $800 price. This laptop has a 2-in-1 design that lets its display flip nearly 360 degrees around, so you can use it as a tablet. It also features two USB-C ports, a USB Type-A port, and a headphone jack.
In my colleague Monica Chin’s review, she says that the C740 doesn’t stack up to some pricier 2-in-1 laptops when it comes to performance, battery life, or having a standout feature, though it’s reliable for everyday purposes and has a sturdy aluminum build. Its greatest asset is its price, which is now $200 less than it was during the review process. That’s what makes today’s deal worth checking out.

There are so many models on the market that it can be tricky to tell them apart, but here’s what you need to know about this TV, in particular: in addition to being a quantum dot LED TV that offers better color accuracy and contrast versus other LED and LCD screens, the Q70T supports variable refresh rate, which is a boon for gaming on a PC that’s capable of high frame rates. This feature should come in handy once the Xbox Series X and PS5 launch. It also has a feature called adaptive picture, which lets the TV automatically adjust settings based on the ambient lighting in the room.
